Found April 07, 2013 on NFL Injury Report:
The New England Patriots are likely to add a wide receiver through the upcoming NFL Draft, according to Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk. Smith notes that five wide receivers caught passes for the Patriots last season, and none of those players are currently under contract for the team. The Patriots did sign St. Louis Rams free agent wide receiver Danny Amendola earlier this offseason, and he’s likely to claim one of the starting roles – potentially as a Wes Welker-type in New England’s offense. Still, the Patriots will need to add at least one other wide receiver through the draft as they continue to fill out their roster. New England has had visits from USC Robert Woods, Oklahoma’s Kenny Still and Oregon State’s Markus Wheaton. Smith notes that Wheaton is specifically the type of versatile player New England covets, as he saw time at wide receiver and running back during his time at Oregon State.

Patriots to draft a wide receiver?

Even though the New England Patriots signed Danny Amendola this offseason, Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com believes they’ll likely come out of this year’s draft with a wide receiver. Whether it’s in the first, second or third round, I think it’s clear that the Patriots need to come out of the 2013 draft with a receiver. That, to me, is the most compelling storyline for the club...

NFL Draft Talk 2013 – New England Patriots

The talk of NFL Free Agency this offseason was “Will Wes Welker return to New England?”, which quickly morphed into “How will the Patriots replace Wes Welker?” Wide Receiver depth has never really been a strong point of this team.  When they were dominating teams in the regular season and playoffs (beat you all to the joke), they were doing it with the likes of Deion Branch...

Rob Gronkowski Likely to Need 4th Surgery on Broken Forearm

Infections can be a serious thing post-surgery, it is one of the things that doctors always warn you about, because if something does get infected, you have to basically have the same surgery all over again. Doctors thought they got all of GRONK’s infection out after his 3rd surgery on his forearm, but that doesn’t seem to be the case. New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski ”very...
